To the editor:
Shame on Michael Herring for his Oct. 23 letter to the editor using the death of my mother, Emily DiStasio, for political purposes. The Calabash Board of Commissioners, on behalf of the town, was most gracious to me and my family honoring my mother with a bereavement wreath at Calabash Town Hall, lowering the flag to half-staff and, along with the employees, attending her funeral. I also understand at the last meeting Mayor Mary Knight read quite a tribute to my mother’s 14 years of service to this town. I only wish I had been invited to hear it.
